BS 431 - Genes and Brains (cross-listed as NS 431)


Advances in the fields of neuroscience and genetics have begun to unravel complex ways in which our genes control proper functioning and dysfunctioning of our brains. In this course-based undergraduate research experience (CURE), students investigate emerging ideas in neurogenetics through rigorous and collaborative laboratory-based research. Students apply the scientific method to test hypotheses, collect and interpret data, and examine broader relevance of their experiments through analysis of primary literature.
